//Varicose Vein Symptoms – not always the same

Varicose Vein Symptoms – not always the same

Many patients I see at my Albuquerque vein treatment center, Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, are shocked to discover that their leg discomfort is being caused by vein problems.

Vein disease is a slow, progressive process with a huge spectrum of symptoms.  The classic symptoms include heaviness, aching, tiredness, burning, throbbing, itching and swelling.  This discomfort often develops over the course of months or years, and over time, people may develop bulging varicose veins, and may even begin to notice some skin discoloration around the ankles that can signal damage to the skin caused by vein disease.  Since it is a slow process, many people just “live with it” and never figure out why their legs always feel heavy, achy and tired.

The only way to accurately diagnose vein disease and formulate a sound treatment plan is to visit a dedicated vein center where the vein specialist can perform a venous duplex ultrasound, which will indicate any issues with blood flow in your venous system.  At Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, I use only the latest state-of-the-art procedures and equipment for the diagnosis and treatment for vein disease, and perform all procedures in my office.  Most patients return to immediate activity, and note significant improvement in the way their legs look and feel, which is our #1 goal.
